Just minutes after Plumas News received notification that Plumas Unified School District was suspending in-person classes next week, Plumas Charter issued a similar directive for some of its locations.
In a message to parents this afternoon, Executive Director Taletha Washburn wrote:
“As you know, the presence of COVID-19 in our communities is gaining momentum, and there are now several schools throughout the county that have partially closed to onsite classes due to positive cases linked to the schools.
“While, as of today (at 2 p.m.), PCS school sites do not have positive cases directly linked to them, the potential for this happening is significant, especially in Quincy and Chester. Because of this increased risk, PCS has decided to follow suit with PUSD and close our learning centers in Quincy and Chester to onsite classes next week (Nov. 16-20). Because there are no cases linked to schools (today at 2 p.m,) in Indian Valley, Indian Valley Academy and the Greenville Learning Center will keep to their regular schedule, unless something changes.”
The following two weeks had already been established — there would no on site classes offered during the Thanksgiving break and the following week (weeks of Nov. 23-27, and Nov. 30-Dec. 4).
The current plan is to resume on-site classes the week of Dec. 7, but that will depend on the COVID situation at the time.
